Have had it where you ping a hostname and it can't find it and it pings a different hostname thats similar but not the hostname I originally pinged which returns the wrong ip , same happens when doing an nslookup, tracert etc so good point on the ping and not relying on arp utils ie ping etc

I can RDP into it yes, How would i go about doing that to the arp table please?
I'll assume you have confirmed you can still talk to the box via RDP
or something at that time to rule out a true network problem (I wouldn't trust ping because if it's arp it might still be something "alive" that has stolen the IP).
ie, by RDP
you can verify the box you're talking to is the box you want to be talking to.
Otherwise it might be worth trashing the arp table and then trying to reconnect, I've seen random shenanigans with shares when people have had poisoned arp tables.

Yes, just use an elevated comand prompt to do it.

Not sure if that will help
Also seeing as the mapped drives are on the virtual server - the network settings on the virtual server, do you get the same settings ref bridged mode or otherwise ? Can't remember the name of the other setting ?
If so just wondering if changing between the 2 makes any diff ?
